I am a seaman’s girlfriend.

I am a seaman’s girlfriend.

He has to be away from me for ten months. Too long for some, yes it is. But I guess, I have already learned to deal with our situation though my heart cries an ocean everytime he’s on board and everytime he’s leaving me for awhile.

Long distance relationship. It comes in various forms. Whatever form it comes, it only mean that lovers are away from each other – physically but not in hearts.

This blog space is not enough. Words can’t even fully express how we deal with the situation and how we are able to survive the relationship. LOVE + GOD + constant Communication is the answer for all of these. Period.

What’s good thing about our relationship is that, once he is back, were like starting again. Excitement is always around. The feeling grows more! It always ends up me saying: HE IS WORTH THE WAIT.
He is with me for a vacation as I write this, but in a month or two, he has to work again. Working would mean leaving me again. After ten months, he is back again. Hope this cycle would end up like what every fairytale do – to live happily ever after.

    I am a seaman’s girl for five years. I had to find out today if there existed a web site about us! Ok, I am not alone, feel better. No seriously, I suppose we live it all, this craving for our boyfriend while he is away, like one mentionned it is always a new beginning and yes he is worth the wait. I live in Quebec, Canada and he lives in the Netherlands. How did we meet? Well like he says to people who ask. Do you have an hour!

    I’m a seaman’s girlfriend too.and its kind’a hard for me cuz’at first i really dont know what to do. I just cry and cry evryday. Don and I been together for 1year and 3mons, that moments with him is full of happiness and romance.even we fight often but it made our relationship more stronger! and now, we didnt see each other for 10mons. and waiting for 7months for him to go home. its really hard to be a seaman’s girlfriend, keeping intouch with him tru emails,fb,internets are not enough!:( but because i knew that he really loves me so much as what i did! it gives me strength ! To make this LDR strong!we must Put God between you and your partner! and I’l tell you it will work! and always be postive and patience. therer a reason for evrythng! we need to wait ,sacrifice and undrstand their situation! I know im not the only girl whos experiencing this kinda situation! Godbless us all!

  10. ritchiel Says:

    it so hard for me to adjust in this situation.but i am willing to wait him coz i love him.

  11. Rhon Valerio Says:

    i am a seaman’s girlfriend also.. and being a seaman’s girl is kinda hard.. patience,love and trust are the most important thing to keep the relationship.. and of course putting GOD in the middle of the relationship.. we are now in our 1st month of being faraway.. and we still have a year of not being with each other.. its hard to adjust because this is my first long distance relationship but we can make this relationship work with God’s help..i love him so much..

  12. Rax Candelaria Says:

    I’ve been with a seaman for more than three years. It’s hard, yes. But through constant communication, trust, respect, and prayers, we’re able to pass the distance test. We are blessed that because of technology, being far from each other is not that hard. I’m able to know his whereabouts and activities everyday as if we’re just close. I believe love is not just about being together physically. Love is a commitment and whether we are far from them or not, it doesn’t matter anymore. I am still praying for God to guide both of us and hopefully, this distance gap between us will also vanished. I know time will come when all the waiting, time differences, skype/telephone conversations will also stop. By God’s grace and perfect timing, it will happen. God bless us all! 🙂

  15. pink Says:

  16. Indoubt Says:

    Hi.. Same situation here.. Been a girlfriend of this seaman for 4 years now…for the first time that he went on board, it’s too sad and I miss him so much.. Every time he leaves me, I always end up crying in the airport.. I’m afraid and even can’t imagine not ending up with him… We have plans for the future of course… And that includes fulfilling my dreams too.. Long before we met, I have this dream of working abroad.. I continue to process my application and that’s the time I met him… At first, it seems not to worry me of my application because of the slow processing… He knew my plans and is okay with it… We discussed this and he said if my application will be approved he’ll wait for me hell continue to be a seaman and by that time we can save money for us… It sounds ok at first… But by the time my application was approved, I am turned into staying and just be with him waiting or fulfilling my dreams… I know it would maybe take years before I can return… And afraid that it would change everything between us… I discussed this with my immigrant lawyer and he said i need to stay there for 2 years straight and 5 years straight if I’m planning to be a citizen there… I’ve been waiting for this my whole life but 5 years is too long and I’m already 29 years old now.. So I’ll start a family at the age of 34 or 35? Pls help who is also in a situation like this… I don’t know what to do… And if ill ask him, he seemed okay.. And dont mind at all… He said he is willing to wait… I know this is a lifetime decision to make and I don’t want to regret everything…

Can i do this? He keep on saying dont wait for him.. But my heart tell me to wait for him.. What shall i do? I am kinda new with this..

  18. yenz d. Says:

    I really miss him a lot. It’s very hard for me to cope with the situation because the relationship is still very fresh. But I am still willing to wait because I know how much we love each other.

  19. Shan Sai Yeo Says:

    Hi! It is such a relief to know that I am not the only one you have this dilemma.

    This is my first time to have a long distance relationship. The loneliness and emptiness haunts me every second of every hour of every day during the first few weeks of “him” being away from me. However, as I was reminiscing our happy moments together, it made me realize to think of another moment of being “happy together” and is thrilled by the thought of being reunited with my him when he get back.

    Each day is a struggle for me not to miss him, even my heart felt like it is to burst in an instant. At times, I thought of some silly ideas which beclouded my rational mind. I asked my closest friend at one time,” if am i just insecure or paranoid”, well, the reply i got was, ” He’s been with you in the most trying times of your life and i believe that he would not be that reckless to “flirt” while putting his relationship with you at risk. He is good inside and out. You’re a little bit paranoid but not insecure.”

    It was then I somehow understand how lucky I am to have him in my life that no matter how far the distance, I can truly be sure that I am always in his heart. I need to be strong for him, I have to be mature for him, I have to grow with him in faith, trust, loyalty, respect and love. I am not sure what the future holds,all I know that, He is worth the wait ,risk, my time, effort and love.

    That I am anchored infinitely and steadily in his heart even I am miles away.

    I am keeping all my Faith to God, so He will continue to strengthen our love for each other. I love him so much..

    i girls i’m so glad to find a site where a seaman’s girlfriend like me express their heartaches and happiness. i am a seaman’s Girlfriend too for 3yrs. and ds coming March will be his first joining, i will be waiting for a year for him to come back. i just hope he will be safe and stay loyal in our relationship. Co’z i’m very much willing to wait for him until he comes back. it’ s soo hard to do things on my own now, were in fact before we used to do things together, his more than a boyfriend to me now, it’s quit sad how things would change if his away.

  21. krisianabell Says:

    hi, i am too… as i read this ,, i can also imagine and relate myself, to what is everybody’s experiencing, especially if you are in a LDR, and you have a seaman boyfriend. Though at times may be tough, but still if you will just come to think about, it, those hard times will keep your faith to each other stronger. YOu will both, grow, and mature in your own ways if you will keep God in the center of your relationship.And i wish , for our relationship, that whatever, trials and circumstances we will face, we will remain calm and vented, and stay inlove always.

  22. Iel labiano Says:

    I’m a seaman’s girlfriend too! Experiencing this situation is really hard but for the sake of your loved one you will survived.

  23. Beeby Says:

    Glad to know I’m not the only one on this kind of situation. Though he’s not yet on board ,still waiting for his contract and departure, I can’t imagne he’d be going away from me for 1year .its our first time to be that far. In our 2yrs and 7mos of being together and seeing each other almost everyday,spending each time atleast 5hrs a day ‘everyday’, I really don’t know what to do when he’ll go away,away from me.I am taking my board exam months frm now and I don’t know how to deal with pressure and managing emotional stability. I am a very weak girl,and reminiscing our time and moments together always makes me cry. I don’t knw what to do on that day he’ll go away. I’m so depressed .

  24. Jud Says:

    seaman’s ex-gf here.. i think seafarer’s value the family relationship too much either blood related or not. It is frustrating for them too being away with their loved ones, and the sunset at the ocean from a sailin’ ship across the pacific or atlantic is so lonely. so, when they got to go home, fill that love and care they missed for the past 6, 9, or 10 months. by the way, I’m a wife to that seaman now and we got 1 child working for more!

  25. dan Says:

    hello there! hearing you all is a bit quite a relief. Yes! same as you, I am also a seaman’s girlfriend… indeed it’s a bit hard knowing that you and your partner will be miles apart but the good thing is that knowing both of you have its goal to achieve together and having God as your center of everything hey! what could happen?think positive! wishing us all a happy and triumphant LDR with our best of MAN,our seaman. 🙂 i’ll be leaving a something that might help inspired you.

  26. Jas Flawless GC Says:

    🙂 I love my seafarer. We always put God first and we remind each other to pray and be patient and continue to be sweet in our emails. Emails…because that’s mostly how we communicate. It’s never easy but it’s not so hard to wait either if both of you have goals (marriage and being happy ever after) hehe. 🙂
